The Community |
Spanning about 300 acres with approximately 10 miles of shoreline, Lake summit is a very special place. There are just over 250 cottages with boathouses around the lake; most used as summer getaways. On the western end of the lake and along the headwaters of the Green River, Camp Greystone for girls, Camp Green Cove for girls and Camp Mondamin for boys have a long history as great summer camps. Duke Power generates power from their hydroelectric plant at the eastern end of the lake. The Green River is the main tributary for the lake, and with just one look into the water, you will know why it is called the "Green" River. Residents enjoy power boating, sailing, skiing, wakeboarding, kayaking, swimming, pontoon cruises and just sitting on the porch taking in the view.
Lake Summit has long been one of the most desired locations in the mountains. Just 8 minutes from Flat Rock and 12 minutes to Hendersonville, Lake Summit is centrally located between Greenville, Spartanburg, and Asheville; each just about 35 minutes away. The Asheville Regional Airport (AVL) is an easy 20-mile drive. The Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) is 35 miles away. The Charlotte airport (CLT) is approximately 95 miles away.
